On Friday, November 7, 2014 at approximately 2:20 p.m., Anne Arundel County Police responded for a report of an abduction/carjacking.

A 17-year-old male, who was not a student at the school, advised that approximately two hours prior to notifying the police, he was driving on F Street, Ft. Meade, MD near the Meade Senior High School. The victim advised that a black male suspect jumped out in front of his car and pointed a handgun at him and his dog, a miniature schnauzer. The suspect then entered the vehicle and made the victim drive to the Orchard Food Mart on Reece Rd. which is approximately two miles from where they were. The suspect then exited the victim’s vehicle and walked away. The victim was not injured during this incident.

The victim then drove home where he resumed his normal activities. When the victim’s mother arrived home, he explained to her what happened and that is when the police were contacted. The investigation was then turned over to the Provost Marshal Office since the incident occurred on military property.

During the investigation, officers learned that a possible suspect had entered the school just prior to when this incident occurred at approximately 12:00 p.m. The suspect was there to see his girlfriend, but was quickly removed from the school. It is believed the suspect left the school and committed this act.

As the investigation progressed, it was confirmed that this incident occurred at a location on the Meade Senior High School/Meade Middle School campus where the Anne Arundel County Police Department shares concurrent jurisdiction with the U.S. Army Provost Marshal Office (PMO). Also, it was determined that the possible suspect in this incident was a 17-year-old juvenile. It was determined at this point that the Anne Arundel County Police Criminal Investigations Division would take the lead on the investigation.

The suspect was positively identified through further investigative means. During the process of this investigation, the suspect’s mother reported him as a missing person.

An arrest warrant was obtained for Demonta Jerome Walker, charging him as an adult with the following offenses: Carjacking, first degree assault, second degree assault, kidnapping, handgun in a vehicle, handgun on a person, firearm use in a felony violent crime, animal cruelty, trespass on school property, and dangerous weapon on school property.

The suspect turned himself into police late Sunday night.
